Transplanting Trees Perth


Ashburton Crane Hire was employed by Brookfield Multiplex for the relocation of palm trees from the Crown Casino to the new Crown Towers site in Perth. When we extracted the palm trees, the crane was lifting 13 tonnes. When cleaned and prepared for their relocation the weight was 7 tonne! Go figure! If you need big tree transplanting in Perth, then phone Ashburton Crane Hire helpful staff for a quote and information about our previous tree transplanting in Perth projects.

What kind of tree can fit into your hand?
A palm tree of course 🙂

  • 6 x men involved with the relocation
  • 11 hrs work

You always bark at the right tree with ACH! 🙂
